This is a classic 100% varietal Norton/Cynthiana, that is delicate and gently dry. A warm weather red great for pairing with sandwiches, tacos, and pasta salads.

A local favorite dry red table wine, this batch is a blend of several Chambourcin estate vintages with a long finish and full silky body with vanilla and berry nuances. A carnivore’s delight, this wine pairs naturally with grilled juicy red meats.  (serve at 60 to 65˚F)

8. LIQUID POETRY 2006

A port finished in the style that our grandparents enjoyed with long after dinner chats. It is made for the PORT lover and the discriminating sweet tooth. This 10 year old port has 50% more alcohol than our table reds and is a great companion to chocolate, brownies and cheese cake. (65˚F)
